Incredible pic, very rare to see a strike this close. Possible positive streamer coming off of left side of house roof. I have written a blog about this photo: http://ow.ly/2mug1 -- weathermatrix
Your heart still beating? great grab -- johnstownwildfire
I would love to see a picture after the strike... how much damage did you find and check the ground around the tree... -- johnstownwildfire
Nice photo capture! The storms have been going around us here in Sugarhouse, no lightening so near as that. Was only that close to lightening once in Texas and made every hair on my body stand on end. Not looking to repeat that experience. -- wasatchfront weather team
